Answered: How Did Candide Ski on that Wave?

Candide Thovex and Audi's quattro 2 is chock-full of shots which strain credulity. Did Candide really land that double-backflip to dirt? How did he manage to ski at top speed into that hut? Did he catch that wave on his skis? Accusations of overt editing have plagued the Flying Frenchman since the One of Those Days series, but his new behind-the-scenes series is pulling back the curtain on his enigmatic edits.

One of the more mind-boggling shots from quattro 2 shows Candide skiing a wave straight onto a Jamaican beach. While it's not hard to surmise that Candide probably didn't paddle out to the break with his skis on, his new BTS reveals even more trickery than we expected. In a wild turn of events, it turns out that the ski-surfing was shot in two wave pools, one in Spain and one in Wales.

Check Out Red Bull’s Full Film About the K2 Ski Descent

Exactly two years ago, on July 22, 2018, Polish ski mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel made history by becoming the first person to ski off the summit of K2. We’ve seen photos and short video clips from the adventure, but we’ve had to wait until today to finally see the full film and story of the first descent. It took Bargiel over 60 hours of solo climbing to reach the summit (sans supplemental oxygen) before he clicked into his skis and linked turns the whole way down. The feat put him on the map

The star-studded list of attendees included (but was not limited to) Torin Yater-Wallace, Quinn Wolferman, Tom Wallisch, Colby Stevenson, Birk Irving, Trevor Kennison, Cody Wilder Ray, and Cody LaPlante.
